Going Hollywood With Amp'd Mobile

Hooray for Hollywood! No, not the movies. THE Hollywood cell phone by Amp'd Mobile. How cool is it? Suffice it to say that the recommended basic service plan for the Hollywood is called "End The Boredom".

That's Amp'd Mobile for you. The name Amp'd implies something hipper than the big cellular carriers with their big stores on every corner. Amp'd has an image designed to appeal to the 18 to 35 year old crowd, but there's no bouncer standing there at the velvet rope. If you think cool, Amp'd is for you.

Now lets take a look at the Hollywood model phone. If it seems oddly familiar, it's because Hollywood's heritage is the venerable Motorola E815. Hollywood is model E816 from Motorola and has all the hot technology that gives you digital photography, video on demand, and MP3 music in an easy to carry flip-phone.

The Amp'd Mobile Hollywood has a sleek black case with two color displays. The main color display is a vibrant high resolution design intended to support Amp'd Mobile's huge selection of video entertainment and games. In metropolitan areas that enjoy the EV-DO high speed data network provided by Verizon Wireless to Amp'd, you'll be able to watch your heart's content of entertainment shows such as MTV, VH1, programming from the big three TV networks, E! entertainment and Access Hollywood, cartoons, NASCAR and Supercross racing, sports from FOX, FUEL TV, Skateboarder, Snowboarder and Surfer, Accu-Weather, Food Network, and Import Tuner.

That's just a few. There are a lot more channels available. Many are included in the higher level services called Amp'd Overload, Amp'd Overdose and Amp'd TV. Other entertainment includes Amp'd Radio with linear streaming in a variety of genres, and games like Brothers in Arms, Splinter Cell, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, and Downtown Texas Hold'em.

The Amp'd Mobile Hollywood lets you carry your own music with you with a built-in stereo MP3 player. Expandable memory lets you store more of your tunes. It also lets you store the sharp high resolution pix you take with the on-board 1.3 Megapixel digital camera. It has 4x digital zoom and can act as a camcorder with video length limited only by the amount of available memory.

Hands-free operations are supported with a speakerphone, Bluetooth wireless communications and awsome voice-dialing that requires no pre-training of the phone. While this phone is definitely worth showing off, sometimes you just need to clip a Bluetooth headset on your ear and put the phone back in your pocket.

The Amp'd Mobile Hollywood has lots of other useful features including voice memo, calculator, calendar, and a huge 1,000 contact phone book with up to 6 numbers per entry. Talk time is an impressive 280 minutes max, or over 4 1/2 hours. Standby time is up to 280 hours or almost 12 days before you need to return to the charger. Of course, heavy video viewing will reduce these times. Then again, there's always plenty more electricity in the wall socket.

Of course, if you have your heart set on a different model phone or perhaps a different cellular carrier, there are great deals on exactly what you are looking for at Cell Phone Plans Finder.
